Less bumpiness but lumped

I want to thank everyone who has responded to my "bumps in the night" post. I would like to reassure everyone that really I knew and know that this is a result of hormonal changes. Yes, yes I know I should still get a mammogram, just to have a baseline and all that. After decades of cycles with no lumps it was rather shocking to suddenly have one, and with Sunny's cancer last year the bump raised all those lovely images dancing in my head Sunday night.

In totally unrelated news, I finished the scarf for Lacevember on Sunday morning! This afternoon I blocked it but no photos yet. Can I tell you how thrilled I was that I finished this commitment with days to spare?

Also last Monday I stated to my coordinator that I intended to have a preliminary treatment plan for my new client by Wednesday and I did!

However school work is stalling but on the upside I have never been this on top of things, even though I'm behind. I have made progress with accepting the notion that I will have add yet another semester in the fall. The upside, at least I think it's an upside, is that I can choose do do oral exams or a final project. If I keep working through the winter and summer breaks than maybe I can take a "fun" class in the fall. Yeah, I am the original "if life gives you lemons make lemonade" girl.

For the moment I need to keep plugging along with school, the BirthWays newsletter, work, T'Mane's outfit, the mystery project, a couple of holiday gifts that need to be knitted and wait out the start of my cycle and the disappearance of one area of discomfort in my life.

wow, I don't know what to say, except offer the usual platitudes. BC scares the heck out of me, and as I tend to overreact in cases like this I guess I'd have been at a hospital in the middle of the night to have it checked out LOL. I hope it will all disappear and that it is cycle related...
Cheers Eva

Congrats on the scarf. Hooray! I'd like to see a picture when you get around to it.

I'm sorry there's a cloud over your head right now. I really really hope it's cycle related. It's doubly scary for you b/c of what happened last year. Keep us updated please.
